That's always worked - that's how it was in Drupal 5. The convention
preferred in Drupal 6 is merely a human-friendly helper, to more cleanly
distinguish which version an update is tied to. As long as your updates
are in sequential numeric order, the convention you use doesn't really,
truly, matter - the calling code doesn't give a crap.
With that said, I agree with everyone else's sentiment: you're wrong ;)
